Then and Now: Surratt Boarding House
Then (left): Though photographed ca. 1900, the house (left) wasn't much different from when Mary Surratt ran a boarding house at 604 H. Street, NW. She became connected to the Lincoln Assassination because she rented rooms to John Wilkes Booth and his conspirators prior to the attack on President Lincoln.

Now (right): The main entrances have been moved to the ground level rather than the second. While largely intact, there is not much of historical significance beyond the shell and the address. Currently, both the Surratt house and the structure to the west of it have Chinese food services on the ground floor.
